SOME ELEMENTS FOR THE GARDEN

SOME ELEMENTS FOR THE GARDEN

Some elements, axes–
earth, air, fire, water
for the garden:

Earth, some maternal loam
studded with nutrients, complexity,
most every bit of it delicious
to plants and insects

Air, breath that kindles, licks earth

Current swirling spirit stardust

Van Gogh
sky

Water’s buttressing sustenance,
liquid crystal–interesting looseness–
makes plants firm

Fire magical witness, rather rare as far
as outdoor elements go, harnessed,
slapping sparks contained
and employed by humans
and their decisions

The ever-present cast of the sun

Coaxing,
sometimes scouring

Fluid oven clocking our
moving motion

~ Lady
